Through our Pathways to Prosperity initiative, we are transforming youth and young adults into high-performing, well-paid members of society. We are also helping children and youth make gains by using our technology training to support academic performance and truancy. Applications are accepted for all programs on an ongoing basis but only reviewed during recruitment periods (see course catalogs). Potential candidates can apply for our STEMAcad training online and currently there is no application fee to apply. Registration for our high school and middle school work is driven by each school. Our current programs under our Pathways initiative include:

During these continued unprecedented times Urban Ed is still open for business and all classroom and online IT cert courses are continuing; however, only in a remote delivery. New courses and career pathways have been introduced for 2021. Our work with middle and high school youth is also continuing through digital learning plans. Enrollment is still open and also done remotely so now is an excellent time to reskill or upskill for the ever growing demand for IT pros. We have shifted all physical classroom sessions to a live daily virtual delivery and still offer our mentored self-paced online courses covering many in-demand career pathways.
